Danny Ward (born 15 June 1980) in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. English former professional rugby league player. Coming from a rugby family, as Danny's Father, David Ward also played for Great Britain And Leeds Rhinos. Danny played for Great Britain, Leeds Rhinos, Castleford Tigers, Hull Kingston Rovers, and Harlequins. Even scoring a try against our own Hull FC in the 2005 Challenge cup finals. Danny is currently Andrew Henderson's assistant coach at the London Broncos since 2015 and previously head coach of the u19s.
Speaking of the first book he loved ‘A Kestrel for a Knave’ (which the great film Kes was created from) Danny says: “is absolute classic”. But it was a great Teacher of his, Mr Butler that helped him in his school years. Having a great teacher like him helped him through his GCSEs in English language and literature. Being a young kid, he wasn't bothered about the school, but having a fantastic teacher helped change his outlook of school life, which Mr Butler did just that.
Danny talks about the failures he's had in his life: “I don't try to dwell on the failures too much or look at it, but throughout my life and playing career, being an adult, there have been lots of lots of failures. I think you can't dwell on them. Learning to move on from your failures is just as important. When it can be hard and not probably something, I've learned. As I've got older, I wished I got a grasp of it as a young kid. You spend so much time worrying about what's up and then any mistakes you've made. It's just about moving on from it and learning best you can”.
